Beef stroganoff usually takes hours to prepare but our recipe for hamburger stroganoff is quick and easy to make and tastes just as flavorful.
You won’t find any ready-made creamed soups when you dig into this hearty meal. We use flour, beef broth and bouillon cubes to keep the meat sauce light and healthy and it needs a mere 15 minutes to simmer and thicken.
A smidge of sour cream adds just the right texture for spooning over a bed of noodles or mashed potatoes.
We’ve made a hamburger stroganoff recipe that is perfect to serve any day of the week.
Hamburger Stroganoff Recipe
- 16 oz bag wide egg noodles
- 1 lb ground chuck
- 1/2 yellow onion, finely diced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- 14 oz can beef broth, or chicken broth
- 1 tsp beef bouillon
- 8 oz container mushrooms, sliced
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- salt and black pepper, to taste
- Place a large pot of water over high heat and bring to a boil to cook egg noodles.
- While the water is coming to a boil, place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add ground beef. Cook the beef approximately 6–8 minutes, breaking the meat into small chunks as it browns.
- When it has nearly browned and only a bit of pink remains, add onion and garlic. Cook an additional 3–4 minutes until onion has softened.
- Drain excess grease from beef and return the skillet to heat. Sprinkle with flour and stir to combine. Once the flour is completely absorbed, add beef broth and bouillon, stirring to combine.
- Add mushrooms and bring liquid to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until the sauce has thickened substantially.
- While sauce is simmering, add egg noodles to boiling water and cook according to package instructions. Drain noodles into a colander but do not rinse. Set aside until the sauce has finished cooking.
- Once the sauce has simmered until nice and thick, remove from heat and stir in sour cream. Season to taste with salt and plenty of fresh cracked black pepper then spoon over cooked egg noodles. Enjoy!
To prevent noodles from sticking together after cooking, toss them in a bit of melted butter.
